We all know that watching films is one of the best activities you can partake in after consuming cannabis. That being said, watching Netflix just doesn’t cut it sometimes. If you’ve never had a cannabis-enhanced cinema-going experience, you need to try it out. In this article, we provide some suggestions for what we think will be the best movies to watch stoned this summer.
Incredibles 2 (June 15)
We’ve waited nearly 14 long years for this sequel and it’s finally here. Everyone’s favorite superhero family returns in this beautifully animated and colorful film.
Many superhero movies nowadays are drama-filled (e.g. Avengers Infinity War), but Incredibles 2 remains lighthearted while still delivering an entertaining story.
Recommended strain: Bubba Kush is great for relaxing and known to boost happiness. It pairs nicely with a fun and visually pleasing movie.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22)
Dinosaurs. Need I say more? Okay, fine. Chris Pratt. This heart-pounding thrill ride takes a few of our favorite things and ties them up into a neat little 2-hour package.
While the storyline may not be Oscar-worthy, it is undoubtedly one of the best movies to watch stoned this summer.
Recommended strain: Chemdawg induces a euphoric feeling and a heavy blanket of relaxation. It’s quite potent, so if you’re new to cannabis you may want to try a less heavy-hitting strain.
Mission Impossible – Fallout (July 27)
As we’ve learned from past Mission Impossible movies, in reality, the mission is very likely possible thanks to Tom Cruise’s badassery. Sit back and enjoy this familiar action-packed adventure. It’s likely to be chock-full of dangerous stunts and spectacular special effects.
Recommended strain: Space Candy. There’s no need to purchase sweets at the theatre, the sweet flavors of this strain will suffice. Expect your body to be at ease while your mind remains engaged.
Replicas (August 24)
Keanu Reeves stars in this near future sci-fi flick in which he brings his family back to life after a fatal car crash. The film appears to delve into the morality of cloning and its implications for society.
You can expect yourself to be in deep thought, pondering some of the most complex questions that we’ll eventually have to face as science continues to progress.
Recommended strain: LSD (the cannabis strain) is helpful in assisting with creative thinking. Perfect for a movie that will be tasking you with contemplating philosophical questions.
Slenderman (August 24)
Slenderman is depicted as being tall, thin, having a featureless face, and wearing a suit. His hobbies include sneaking up on people in forests at night and kidnapping children. People are willing to pay money to be scared out of their mind and Hollywood never hesitates to deliver.
Recommended strain: Sunny D allows you to become fully immersed in the viewing experience. Feelings of joy will help make a horror film more fun than terrifying.
